Rafael Flores hails from Andújar, Spain. Under his own name, and also as "Commando Bruno" he has appeared on many solo albums as well as compilations since 1981. A veteran of...

"Mokushi" is the japanese translation of "apocalypse", and all the dictionaries give to it the meaning of "great catastrophe, total disaster, weighty calamity". Simply this is a common place, a cliché which we must demolish. In reality the root of the word "apocalypse" comes from the greek "apokàlypsis", which means "discovery, revealment", and on it we don't find simply a fatalistic message of world's destruction, but a discovery, a...

"To Ancient Noise" is a compilation of manipulated environmental sounds. Whether field recordings, found sounds, radio snippets, or other odd recorded artifacts of audio, these elements are worked by sound artists in interesting and often startling ways. In some cases the sounds may not be processed much at all, but are rather selected for their rhythmic virtues. In other cases, sounds have been layered and heavily effected into lush and alien soundscapes, dark and mysterious. With...

This is one of the most unique artists weve come across in a while due to the fact it is impossible to classify his sound. Rafael Floress sounds do not run smoothly. Utilizing field recordings, old jazz records & god knows what else? They are broken, twisted & mysterious. What do you think? ( 5 reviews ) Topics: SoundScapes, Field Recordings
Machines... More than technology to help us through the day, they also have a sense of personality. If you don't believe this compare in your mind the machines from, say, the 1920s to those from today-- think of your cell phone, then the Goldbergian monstrosity Bell invented. Doesn't this difference mark the character of 2 diffferent eras? This EP by Mystified looks back, sometimes a decade, and sometimes as far as a century, to machines of the past, and the sounds they might make in our minds.
